55th Anniversary Ideas

Amy Cunningham

After more than 5 decades, your relationship is more glorious than the Emerald City of Oz. If you want to follow the modern and traditional 55th anniversary gifts, try jewelry with emerald stones. If you want an alternative, try emerald colored gifts. Either way, give gifts of love.

Traditional Gift: Emerald

  • Any type of emerald jewelry makes a great anniversary gift for her or him.
  • Quality cufflinks with an emerald encrusted on them would work well for him.
  • A bouquet of her favorite flowers in an emerald green vase.
  • Emerald colored glassware and a bottle of wine.
  • An emerald colored glass keepsake box with photos of your years together and a love letter.
  • Splurge on a trip to the Emerald Isle.

Modern Gift: Emerald

  • Any of the "Traditional" Emerald gifts would work well for the modern gift selection as well.

Romantic Ideas

  • Give her 55 roses (or whatever flower you used in your wedding) to celebrate 55 years.
  • Relive the past, watch your wedding video again, look at your wedding album together, and reflect on the last year.
  • Create an anniversary time capsule!

Homemade Gift Ideas

  • Anything green works here. Create a floral arrangement of only green shaded flowers. Design a mosaic using only green shades of tiles. Create a project using outdoors items such as grass, leaves, etc.
